I think you might turn her off the Dead forever, if you made a Dead do the Beatles comp. ! At most , they were nice tip of the hats, to the greatest studio Rock band . I think elbow is correct in his approach . I vote for "American Beauty ".

She's heard just about every studio effort, many live recording and has seen Further and Phil and Friend. I just thought if there was enough Beatles stuff she'd get a kick out of it.

Thanks for the feedback

For a birthday present, I'd concentrate on stuff you know she likes.

Ha! Spoken like my wife that insists far too often she "gets" something that I really like, frankly.

I will say, I have NEVER had the testicular fortitude to give her a present of ANYTHING related to the DEAD. Unless it was Donna's vocal cords in 1974, which she would've appreciated.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the "guy" gifting phenomenon ... have received over the years a good share of tools and hardware and other items I didn't have much interest in, and gradually trained spouse, who in turn has done an admirable job training our son, to make more appropriate selections, i.e., think jewelry rather than hardware department :) Sounds horribly sexist I suppose.
Happy New Year

No, training is the most accurate. Poor boys (well, most of us) don't have a clue about some matters.
Sometimes it's the remembrance of interest and thought that constitutes the true gift, not the particular item. Sometime it's the darn item!

Yes, I've opened a number of gifts and forced myself to think immediately, "It's the thought that counts" ... though of course I could immediately see that hubby's "thought" was about the fun he would get out of the item :)

"of course I could immediately see that hubby's "thought" was about the fun he would get out of the item :)"

I will leave it to others more salaciously minded than myself to take uncouth advantage of that particular hostage to fortune...

Happy 2011, D! I'm starting as I mean to go on. :-)
